DON'T YOU WANNA BE ME?!
I see the way you look at me.
You envy me (you envy me),
And it's killing you (killing you).
And you know it makes me smile
When I look in the mirror,
Thinkin' how good it is to be king.
And don't you wish you were me?
The king of all you see.
Don't you wish you were me?
It ain't that easy.
And don't think you'll ever be
Everything a man should be.
Cause don't you wish you were me?
Keep dreamin'; you'll never be me!
Too soon, you'll be a memory.
There for all too see (forever),
Just illusion (just illusion).
And sometimes it makes me laugh,
When I see your reaction,
Knowing that I've become mighty.
And don't you wish you were me?
The king of all you see.
Don't you wish you were me?
It ain't that easy.
Don't think you'll ever be
Everything a man should be.
Cause don't you wish you were me?
Keep dreamin'; you'll never be me!
[Chanting in background]
Inside my mind there is a freak
That drives me on past all defeat!
You'll never have, you can't instill
The power of my iron will!!
And don't you wish you were me?
The king of all you see.
Don't you wish you were me?
It ain't that easy.
And don't think you'll ever be
Everything a man should be.
Cause don't you wish you were me?
KEEP DREAMING; you'll never be me!
The king of all you see.
It ain't that easy.
Everything a man should be.
Keep dreamin'; you'll never be me!
